Class Action Suit Claims Experian Sold Private Data to Identity Thief

Experian Data Corp. was hit with a class action lawsuit in a California federal court, alleging that the credit reporting agency sold highly sensitive consumer information to an identity thief.

Plaintiffs Maudie Patton, Jacqueline Goodridge, and Virginia Kaldmo, who are all from different states, claim in their class action lawsuit that Experian sold their information to Vietnamese hacker Hieu Minh Ngo, who they say is a “known and now convicted identify thief, black market PII [personal identifiable information] trafficker, and computer hacker.”
